    Hi! She is scared. Try a gentle intro. Softly say her name and lay your hand, holding treat, on the outside of her cage door. A few times a day, for say, 3 days. Then drop treat in. After several more days, add opening cage door and talking softly, telling her how good the treat will be, for a few days. Then, cont holding treat and talking and touching her food bowl trying to entice her to come and get it. Always give a pet a safe hidey hole or bed where they are never disturbed or touched in it. Every pet deserves a sanctuary. Good luck! My DDs Hammie loved his exercise wheel. I can still hear him galloping around it! :-)

    I had both males and females,the males were always nice the females never liked me.  My female ate the male! Do not get a male unless you get rid of her first!!!!   Take it back to the store you got it from and get a boy!!!!   They are really nice and sweet and fun!!!!
